Canon General / Re: Is Australia Canon's favorite?

Companies have been testing new products in Australia for many many years. It has a similar consumer demographic to the USA but only a tenth of the population, plus they have plenty of spare cash  8)

I ended up getting the Glass Limo from Think Tank, along with all the extra pouches. I've already been to Seoul and Busan with it, great bag, very comfortable, I would thoroughly recommend it. Looking forward to the longer trip next year and maybe Japan before then.

Many thanks for all the help and suggestions.

It was only a piece of string, no name really. He demonstrated this on one of the episodes of "Seeing Scotland", a very good landscape photography series that I would highly recommend. All the episodes are available on You Tube.

This is the link to the first of the six episodes.

Pretty sure this was Charlie Waite, the famous English landscape photographer. His technique was fairly minimalist, basically a bit of string that he stood on. His usual method of support was a Gitzo though...

Lenses / Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II travel bag for Alaska
« on: January 07, 2013, 07:16:26 AM »
My plan is a trip to Alaska (bears and scenery), first time since I visited nearly 40 years ago. Any tips on a decent travel bag for a Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II that will be allowed in an aircraft cabin. Also any advice on the best local travel agents for a trip of this type, best choice of lenses to take, best hotels in Anchorage and any other advice or suggestions that will make the trip easy and enjoyable. I am not looking at a budget trip nor a super expensive one, but I can afford to pay for decent comfort.

I bought early and have no regrets at all, I just keep taking shots, both poor and good, posted is an image of my daughter cropped to about 10% of the original size, straight out of the camera, no post processing.
